The Clips and Trips blog was put together in preparation for our leaving the U.S. on an indefinite world travel adventure which started around August of 2009 and returned us home in December of 2012. If you want to see where it all began, read our mission statement from before we left.

Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia
I read that the beach was named Manly beach by a Captain who found the aboriginal people he encountered on the island manly.

This was one of the coves on Manly Beach. The shore was full of little broken shells, hence the name, Shelley Beach. Again, not the most creative in naming conventions. The water was calm and crystal clear, a good place for snorkeling.
Apparently, penguins live in warm places too.
We thought we'd wait to see a penguin, but sadly, we never found one.
